Photo Gallery: Ninth Middle East Conference of the Valdai Discussion Club. Session 3. Arabs and Three Non-Arabs States

On February 17, the Valdai Discussion Club held the third session of its Ninth Middle East Conference, titled "Arabs and Three Non-Arabs States".

Israel, Iran, and Turkey in the Middle East play a special, unequivocal role. Differing fundamentally from their Arab neighbours in cultural, ethno-confessional and political relations, they are forced to face more and more similar internal and external challenges and threats.

With the ongoing transformation of the region, questions arise again and again: what place will these non-Arab states hold in it, how can the legitimate interests of each of them be determined, how can the vicious circle of the security dilemma be broken, how will the relations of these states with the Arab world be built?
